The Ikebukuro district is all hustle and bustle. It is one of three subcenters in Tokyo along with Shinjuku and Shibuya. It attracts about 1 million people a day. However, if you go away a little from Ikebukuro station, you can find quiet places with greenery including cultural one, a cemetery, a famous university, an old temple and so on. A temple in the photo above is Kishibojin Temple. Walking off a main street, through a narrow shopping street, as you reach the approach path to the temple, you feel the atmosphere of old town. Kishibojin has an interesting story, which will be carried on with in my tour. If you are interested in this place, shall we discuss a tour plan? Why don't you join me?
